Mixing & Matching Cultures: When New Teams, Acquisitions, and Talent Come Your Way

Thursday, May 9th, 2019 @ 10:15 am - 11:45 am

What’s it all about? In a fluid economy, only one thing is certain. There will be a constant movement of talent. This can present in many forms, from small to large: the rebuilding of work teams, new executive leadership, organizational restructuring, and mergers and acquisitions. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the world of healthcare, and we have invited Judy West, CHRO of MaineHealth, to share her observations on this landscape in Maine. MaineHealth is our state’s largest employer, and Judy has seen it all. She is joined by Aimee Giglio, CHRO of Dartmouth-Hitchcock, to give a regional perspective. Together they will focus the presentation on dealing with the cultural and business implications of this movement of talent, with specific looks at the role of HR. It’s their intention to turn these observations into strategic lessons that you can scale to the size of your organization.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Gain a strong foundation for understanding the cultural implications of the flow of talent in your organization.
  • Learn how to position HR to be a key player in setting up your organization for success in managing this flow of talent, from financial savvy to planning and resource allocation.
  • Become a resource for your executive team by seeing what they may miss on the strategic human capital front, particularly as it comes to communicating a constant message on culture, values, and change management to all stakeholders in the organization.
